Ascot Quality Leather Comfort Padded Show Bridle with Stainless Steel fittings.
This Comfort Show bridle features a softly padded head piece, noseband & browband. The beautifully raised Noseband has two shorter buckled side straps, for attachment to the head piece, which features cheek and noseband straps each side. This eliminates the need for an over the head strap on the noseband and helps avoid unnecessary poll pressure. It also makes the bridle more balanced with even pull to each side.
A very attractive bridle with enhanced comfort.

Leather should be cleaned and conditioned regularly to keep it supple and to prolong its life. Here are some useful tips on how to maintain your bridlework:-
i) Always apply leather conditioner several times before using new tack, this will soften and protect the leather before use.
ii) Remove sweat and grime everytime the bridlework is used, using a slightly damp sponge or cloth.
iii) Re-apply leather conditioner as necessary, climate and use effect this, like watering a plant too much is as bad as too little!
iv) Depending how often you ride, you will need to dismantle your bridle completely for a thorough cleaning periodically. This will involve using leather cleaner (not saddle soap) and the re-application of conditioner.
v) Check the stitching and billets regularly, paying particular attention to where the bit is attached to the bridle at the reins and the cheek pieces, any wear should be repaired, or replaced by a reputable saddler immediately.
